WHY does everyone think Caribbean Auto Mart is evil?
Seriously, There are so many negative comments about them on here, but no real explanations... what's up.

And beyond here and craigslist - is there a "dealer" you all would recommend.
We are not finding what we need/want from private listings.

Thanks.

CAM is now advertising on Craig's List - and they won't put the price of their cars.
I did inquire and their reply was "DO YOU HAVE A TRADE IN?"

I replied with a NO, and I haven't heard back from them.

I once tried to buy a used car from them. It had a cracked windshield, which I said was OK.
We settled on a price, I left a deposit. Came back 2 days later and they said the price was now $1500
higher since they changed the windshield. I argued, offering to pay the cost for the glass only, and they
absolutely refused to budge. I took back my deposit and went straight to Honda and bought a car that day.

And 7 years later is still runs very well.

I will never buy a car from them again. And I take my Dodge to a private shop if I need work.

I've had nothing but great experiences with CAM on STT and I don't buy cars from anyone else. If I had a dollar for every time someone told me a story that began with "I heard from x/y/z" and it turned out to be bullshit I'd own St John.
